Complete ICT solutions for primary schools… What do all of these activities have in common?
Complete ICT solutions for primary schools… De-coding the new Computing curriculum A taster session looking at 2 strands Disapplication period: Sep 13/14 Statutory from Sep 14
Complete ICT solutions for primary schools… Content Welcome and introduction. Algorithm activity KS1 - Look at strands as a whole. Briefly discuss the mains strands. Look at the focus strand and discuss ideas and activities. Look at example activities to fit in with this strand. KS2 - Look at strands as a whole. Briefly discuss the main strands. Look at the focus strand and discuss ideas and activities. Look at example activities to fit in with this strand. Q & A
Complete ICT solutions for primary schools… A process or set of rules to be followed in calculations or other problem-solving operations, esp. by a computer. What is an Algorithm?
Complete ICT solutions for primary schools… Phone/tablet Apps – Download A.L.E.X. or Enigma http://csunplugged.org/sites/default/files/activity_pdfs_full/ unplugged-01-binary_numbers.pdf Time to try out some Algorithms Or have a go at some binary challenges:
Complete ICT solutions for primary schools… Key Stage 1 Algorithms, coding & programming What you’re already covering 1.understand what algorithms are, how they are implemented as programs on digital devices, and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions 2.create and debug simple programs 3.use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs 4.use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content. 5.recognise common uses of information technology beyond school. 6.use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.

Children given a sticker/card with their action on it. Children tasked to organise themselves to get a ball across the line only following the action on their card. Resources: Beebots Turtle Roamer 2simple 2 go Lightbot Coco Daisy the Dinosaur (iPad) Cargobot (iPad) Lemmings Pingus Cross curricular: PE Literacy What this means: Reading or looking at instructions and discussing what will happen. Key Stage 1 Strand: Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs What this may look like:

Complete ICT solutions for primary schools… Key Stage 2 Algorithms, coding & programming What you’re already covering 1.design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts 2.use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output 3.use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs 4.understand computer networks, including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the World Wide Web, and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration 5.use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked, and be discerning in evaluating digital content 6. select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information 7. use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact Networks and Search Engines
Complete ICT solutions for primary schools… Resources: Internet Wikipedia ICT Technician Your own network Skype/Face time Email Cross curricular: Modern History DT Literacy What this means: What is a computer network, how does it connect internally and externally and how does data travel along it in order to communicate and collaborate? Key Stage 2 Strand: What this may look like: understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the world-wide web; and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration Playing Chinese whispers to demonstrate a ‘Ring’ or ‘Star’ network topology and how data is ‘split’ or ‘chunked’ to transfer. History of the internet and why it first started. Communication and collaboration was the main reason.
Complete ICT solutions for primary schools… Computing Chinese Whispers Practical activity where children are the links in a network. This game also demonstrates how information can be misinterpreted or lost in translation! Key Stage 2 Demo: Build your own Network! http://computing.scbc.wa.edu.au/Docs/AITDocs/Network_SIM.swf
